MEET Brittany

What if I told you that hiring a photographer is not about the photos they take?
*keep reading! don't stop scrolling, I promise this will be good*

My approach is different than most photographers you may find.
I believe that when you hire me to photograph your day, you are hiring a custom curated art.  

You are hiring me to be a part of your day, not someone to stand on the sidelines and take photos. 
You are hiring someone who wants to get to know you.

You are hiring me to learn about YOU and your future spouse - your personality, your family, and your memories that will be passed down for generations.

I walk into your wedding day as a friend. You've already told me your worries, excitements, and the things that are the most important to you. 
Because of this approach, you are getting a custom product. I don't copy and paste my posing, photography timelines, or how I capture a wedding. It is shaped and molded to you two.

You are hiring me to create the photos that begin your legacy together.

I grew up in a tiny farm town in Ohio, but I now call Knoxville, Tennessee my home. I am raising the spunkiest 8 year old, Wyatt. We have two cats, Sprinkles and Bandit (from The Office-- not the tea), so our house is always full of fun!
I love my job because my clients turn into friends and that makes me extremely happy. I wake up every single day with gratitude and amazement that I get to capture the real deal moments in people's lives. 

I'm a Northern girl who traded cornfields for mountain views.
I used to drink unsweetened tea like a crazy person.

MEET Brittany

Quoting The Office (specifically The Dinner Party), my love for the lake, tequila (hello, margaritas), lifting weights, demolishing tacos, wearing Birkenstocks with almost everything, and my secret shame - putting ketchup on everything.

  • Do you travel

    Of course I do! I love going to new places and I have photographed weddings all over the US and have several places I would love to check off of my photography bucket list. Let's go!

  • How do I book you?

    Great question! I try to make it simple - your date is officially on my calendar with a signed contract and 50% retainer.

  • How many weddings have you photographed?

    I photographed my first wedding when I was 15 years old (13 years later, here we are!), so I have had the great honor of capturing over 150 weddings!

  • How many images do we get?

    The long answer is that everyone's wedding is so different and I never limit your image delivery to certain number. The short answer is - I approximate 100 images/hour of coverage time.

  • Is an engagement session included or do we have to book that separately?

    Every wedding collection includes an engagement session! It gives us an opportunity to work together before your wedding but also you walk away with amazing photos of you and the love of your life. Win win ;)

You know the photos you will show your grandchildren one day? I want someone to look at the photos I take of you and say, "Wow... you captured them perfectly"! 
My goal is to capture you exactly the way you are-- I don't want to replicate anyone else. 

I believe in autheticity.

what makes me different

Choosing a photographer is a HUGE decision. I would say it's one of the hardest vendor decisions you have to make. 
I walk with you throughout your wedding day, doing my best to make your wedding photography experience effortless and stressless. 

I treat you like a friend.

what makes me different

"Throughout the wedding planning process Brittany became a dear friend to my husband and I. She answered my millions of questions and helped to put my mind at ease with everything, reaching beyond just the photography aspect of the wedding. She makes you feel comfortable and confident in front of the lens and she takes the most beautiful pictures. For my wedding she went above and beyond and helped make the day so special. She is amazing to work with!
We highly recommend Brittany Sidwell Photography."

When we booked Brittany Sidwell I had no idea how amazing she really was. As a bride you want to feel and look beautiful, but you also want to be yourself and be relaxed on your wedding day. Having Brittany made all of that so easy. She constantly encouraged me on the wedding day even with a scary forecast. She helped me get into my wedding dress and teared up with me as we got so excited for the day.

The truth is there is so much beyond just having a talented photographer. She is so much more than that. She will become your best friend and sidekick on your wedding day  Brittany will remind you of your true beauty and the beauty that comes from true love. She will encourage you and pray for you when things get hard and she will always help you remember the true love you had on your wedding day.

"She constantly encouraged me on the wedding day even with a scary forecast."
